What is structured water?

Structured water is a molecular arrangement of water molecules that exists when water is near hydrophilic (water loving) surfaces. Much like ice, water molecules join together in hexagonally structured single layer sheets. Unlike ice, however, the sheets are flexible and move independently as they are not glued together by protons. The majority of the water in your body is structured water as your bodily tissues are hydrophilic.

How does vortexing create structured water?

In a properly designed vortex, some water molecules dissociate into hydrogen and oxygen. This newly created oxygen and any oxygen already dissolved in the water is mixed up uniformly. Oxygen itself is a hydrophilic element. Hexagonal sheets of structured water grow outward from the oxygen, layer by layer.

Structured water has always existed, but science just now noticed.

Chemists, biologists, physicists, engineers, and medical doctors graduating today (right now!) are not learning about the existence of structured water. That is, unless they were residents in Professor Gerald Pollack’s laboratory at the University of Washington. In his book “The Fourth Phase of Water” (published 2013) Dr. Pollack describes exactly what structured water is and discusses the mountains of scientific data from his experiments over the last several years.

While it may take awhile before you can discuss structured water with your doctor or that scientist who lives down the street from you, currently Dr. Pollack’s book is the best resource on the topic. It is well-written and we highly recommend it to anyone interested in structured water.

This isn't mere filtration. It's the rebirth of water.

Structured water is a battery.

The totality of structured water does not just include the hexagonal sheets of water molecules mentioned earlier, but also the water immediately surrounding them. As the hexagonal layers grow, protons are ejected into the nearby water. This creates a most unexpected phenomenon - an electrical potential (voltage) between the structured water and the water surrounding it. In other words, structured water stores energy, much like a battery.

You might be wondering, “If structured water is a battery, what charges it?” Dr. Pollack discovered that structured water grows (charges) by absorbing radiant energy. Both light waves and infrared waves, for example, charge structured water with energy.

If our bodies are filled with structured water, why do we need more?

Structured water is a battery that needs constant charging. Energized structured water recharges the liquid battery of the body. When the body has sufficient energy, its aqueous interior is highly charged allowing for optimized cellular and metabolic function in addition to greater hydration and detoxification.

As many diseases are rooted in toxicity, dehydration, and improper cell function, consuming energized structured water may improve health in a number of ways. Recent experiments even suggest that water structuring is responsible for proper blood and lymph circulation in the body.

Why most structured water devices should be avoided.

While vortexing creates structured water, not all structured water devices are created equal. This is because once the conditions for structured water have been created by the vortex, the water then needs to absorb radiant energy from the environment to build up the structure further and charge the water battery. It can be said then that structured water needs to ‘mature’ before it is consumed. Viktor Schauberger, the Austrian naturalist and ‘water genius’ said the same thing in many of his famous writings.

Freshly vortexed water, or structured water, provides the body with some energy. However, for true benefits, one should drink only energized structured water. Only energized structured water maximizes structured water’s health benefit to the body.

Can energized structured water really improve health?

Our customers have reported numerous health benefits as a result of drinking Atla Water. Since 2006 we have been crafting the most advanced energized structured water available. Our system also purifies without removing the beneficial minerals. We invite you to explore some of the more interesting health-related reviews we've received over the years.

How to get energized structured water, on tap at the kitchen sink.

Revitalizer™ technology utilized in every Atla Water System is designed to create structured water and energize it to maturity before you drink it. The best part is that the process is fully automatic. You can have energized structured water on tap, all the time. But that’s not all. Our proprietary process also removes most contaminants without removing the beneficial minerals and ensures your water has the optimum pH for drinking water.

In nature, vortex water flow happens continuously due to the irregularity of the surfaces that water flows around. In bottled water facilities and in our homes, it simply never happens. In fact, we discovered even the best water degrades when it travels through common pipes.

We also observed that that recently vortexed water tasted better if it was allowed time to rest before drinking. Ultimately, the best tasting water was created when we vortexed water, allowed it to rest, and then vortexed it again before drinking. This came as no surprise as water in nature is constantly subject to cycles of vortexing and resting.

Revitalizer™ technology was developed to reproduce the way water flows in nature and in the convenience of your own home. It’s the reason why Atla Water tastes better than any other filtered water and even premium bottled waters costing upwards of $8.00 per liter. For comparison, Atla Water costs just $0.03 per liter or at most $0.31 per day, depending on how much water is used annually.

In the Atla System, water flows through multiple stages of what we call primary and secondary vortexes. These are specially tuned vortex variants that power our process. Two gallons of this water fill the system. When you turn on the faucet, water flows through multiple stages of vortexes again before reaching your glass. Many customers proclaim Atla to be the lightest and most refreshing water they’ve ever tried.


The term ‘structured water’ is not scientifically defined and many companies and devices purport to create structured water. When we use the term structured water, we are referring to the specific organization of water molecules in a bulk volume of water as it is found in nature. Dr. Pollack doesn’t call his team’s discovery structured water either (they call it exclusion zone water) but it fits our definition perfectly as this form of water is found everywhere in nature and in our bodies. We don't like to use the term 'structured water' but the people researching this term are very happy with Atla Water.

Our profile of perfect water is based on multiple water samples from ideal sources spanning two continents. The goal was to map every aspect of these waters to learn how to create it in one's home. We didn’t set out to create alkaline water. We didn’t set out to create structured water, whatever that is. Again, it isn't defined scientifically. We did, however, set out to create the most perfect water that could ever be found in Nature. This is the water that flows from every Atla Water System.
